Winston-Salem, NC -- In less than a week, Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed in Georgia. Davis is on death row for the 1989 murder of a Savannah police officer.
His supporters are doing everything they can to try to keep him from dying by lethal injection Wednesday night.
"In Troy's case, seven of the nine witnesses have recanted. That's just too much doubt to be executing somebody on," said Darryl Hunt, who plans to travel to Atlanta from Winston-Salem Friday for a march and service to support Davis.
"Georgia's about to execute an innocent man," said Hunt.
"For me, it's personal, being one vote away from the death penalty myself, to understand how when if a person is executed, you can't say, 'oops, you made a mistake, bring him back,'" he said.
Thanks to DNA evidence, Hunt was exonerated in 2004 after spending almost 20 years in prison wrongly convicted of a rape and murder in Winston-Salem.
He and more than 100 other people are taking buses to Atlanta Friday morning. Mark Rabil will also attend. He was one of Hunt's attorneys and is also the director of the Wake Forest Law School's Innocence and Justice Clinic. He's bringing some of his law students for a real life lesson.
"We have a decent court system," said Rabil. "Usually we get it right but in cases like this, which is unfortunately the most serious type of case, we get it wrong."
"It really does my heart good to see Darryl fighting for other people because that's why we got him out. He's a hero," said Rabil.
Hunt said, "This is what helps me, to help somebody else."
They invite anyone who's interested to join them in their journey to the march and service. Buses leave at 10am Friday from Emmanual Baptist Church in Winston-Salem.
They're hoping to change the minds of the people who have the power to keep Davis alive.
The Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles has a clemency hearing scheduled for Monday for Davis. He is set to die by lethal injection at 7pm Wednesday, September 21.
